What are the effects of testosterone on young women?

The most common cause of congenital adrenal hyperplasia is a genetic mutation. This occurs when there is a change in the 21-hydroxylase enzyme. The adrenal gland needs 21-hydroxylase to make adequate amounts of hormones. If the body is deficit of 21-hydroxylase, which is also known as 21-hydroxylase deficiency, this can result in decreased cortisol production.
CAH is a genetic disorder where your body does not produce an enzyme needed to make adrenal hormones. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a condition in which the ovaries produce an abnormal amount of androgens. The latter also comes with insulin resistance.
